I would try and install Developer Tools again. I had exactly the same  
on a completely different machine (iMac G5, Mac OS X 10.4.8 and  
Tools 2.4.0). I believe that somebody (myself?) did a partial install of
Developer Tools before. I just installed Developer Tools 2.4.1 over it
and everything went fine afterwards.
